Failure to make complete, accurate and honest disclosures on any document to Delaware Institute of Health Sciences and/or the PN program is sufficient reason in and of itself for dismissal from the PN program. Falsification of agency or college forms is grounds for dismissal from the program.
Policies & Procedures:

Non-Discrimination Policy

Delaware Institute of Health Sciences has developed a non-discrimination statement that is published and implemented in program operations. Delaware Institute of Health Sciences is an Equal Opportunity Employer and complies with all applicable laws regarding equal opportunities in all its activities, programs, and employment.

It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, creed, national origin, veteran status, gender, age, or qualified disability. The school complies with non-discriminatory regulations under Title VI and Title IX.  All inquiries concerning discrimination should be directed to Mr. Saheed Rufai, the school administrator.

OSHA Compliance

Delaware Institute of Health Sciences complies with federal ADA (see "Rehabilitation Act..." on the right) and OSHA guidelines for operation of campus sites. If you require any special assistance or accomodations, contact the staff or instructor. A written referral is needed to qualify for some services.

Drug-Free Workplace Policy

In compliance with the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988, as revised by the Drug Free Schools and Communities Act of 1989, Public Law 101-226, Delaware Institute of Health Sciences administration and PN faculty are required to notify employees and students that the unlawful manufacturing, distribution, dispensing, possession, or use of a controlled substance or alcohol is prohibited in the college environment. The school has adopted and implemented an educational, assistance, and referral program for students and employees.

Random drug testing has been mandated in many nursing and health programs and by most employers. Beginning Fall 2006, mandatory drug screening is required of all students accepted into the PN program. PN students will be advised at orientation of procedures and are responsible for the cost of screening and random subsequent screening. Students should be aware that drug and/or DNA screening (hair and/or urine) and background history may be required by many employers. The faculty and students will comply with agency protocols required by clinical affiliates. Any student found to be non-compliant with all agency protocols will be immediately dismissed from the program and may reapply in one year with documentation of a negative drug screen and documentation of treatment in a designated treatment program.

The word "Drug' does not include prescription medications prescribed to the student by the physician or any OTC (over-the-counter) drugs.

Disclaimer Related to Licensure Eligibility

Completion of this PN program does not guarantee passage of the NCLEX-PN exam or licensure as a LPN. The Delaware and other states Boards of Nursing may deny an application for licensure based on prior legal or criminal convictions. Laws do vary in other states. Students who are Delaware residents who have questions or concerns regarding eligibility for licensure are advised to contact the State Board of Nursing where you intend to be licensed prior to enrollment at Delaware Institute of Health Sciences School of Practical Nursing.

Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy (FERPA) Act and its subsequent revisions deal with educational records of students.
